For the better part of the last two years, #Donald Trump has made it a habit to bash the media [VIDEO] on an almost daily basis. Despite Trump's strong words, there's one network that the president can't seem to stop watching.

Trump and Fox News

It all started when Donald Trump stood on the floor of Trump Tower in New York City back in the summer of 2015 and announced that he would be running for president [VIDEO]. During his speech, the former host of "The Apprentice" spoke about his plans on immigration, while referring to those who have come into the United States illegally as "rapists" and "murderers." From that moment forward, Trump has been at odds with the mainstream media, often taking to social media to bash any report that he doesn't agree with, with the exception of #Fox News.

Following his upset election win over Hillary Clinton last November, the billionaire real estate mogul was forced to hit back against allegations that he was in cahoots with Russia after it was revealed that the Kremlin had hacked the election in his favor, with many blaming alleged "fake news" on the internet for his victory. Fast forward to present day and Trump's relationship with the press has only gotten worse, as his own cries of "fake news" have dominated his social media accounts. As first reported by the New York Times on September 1, Chief of Staff #John Kelly has had a difficult time getting the president to step away from watching Fox News.

On Friday, the New York Times released a bombshell new report that uncovered Robert Mueller has an early draft detailing the additional reasons why Donald Trump fired James Comey earlier this summer as Director of the FBI.

In addition, the paper also ran a story noting the trouble new Chief of Staff John Kelly has been having getting on the same page as the president.

John Kelly has been doing his best to clean up the apparent mess he inherited from Reince Priebus, which has included eliminating some of the daily media articles from questionable sources like the right-wing Daily Caller and Breitbart News. The biggest problem, however, is that Kelly has clashed with Donald Trump over his obsession with watching Fox News throughout the day. "Mr. Kelly cannot stop Mr. Trump from binge-watching Fox News," the New York Times writes, while adding that aides to the president say the network is his "primary source of information gathering."

Getting heated

The New York Times report continued, explaining that Donald Trump and John Kelly got into a heated exchange in August where the new Chief of Staff was quoted in saying he had "never been spoken to like that during 35 years of serving his country." Not stopping there, Kelly addressed the issue to some of his aides, stating that "he would not abide such treatment" moving forward.

As of press time, neither Trump or Kelly have responded to the report in question.
